When I open a new window, it opens in a minimized state. Is there a way to have a new window open in the maximized size all the time?  Can I configure windows to do that automatically?

Most applications "remember" their last window size and position when you close them.  If you want an application to start in a maximized state, close them when they are maximized.  If this is not happening to you, then tell us if this is true for all window applications or only a specific application.

Check the shortcuts you're using to start the applications. One of the options allows you to specify if the application starts minimised, maximised, or Normal.

bigdg,
Right click with mouse the shortcut icon on the desktop of your link to the Internet. Here it is "e" for IE5. Then select "properties". In the prompt window, at the box for Run: [   ].
If it is now set as [Minimized], drag the arrow to change it to [Maximized]. Click Apply and OK.

Then you click the link, it will open a maximized window.

Any further queries, please feel free to ask.    pslh

First I'm sorry about the screaming...Second when I right click on the 'E' at my desktop....goto properties, what comes up is a box called internet properties.  This box has 6 tabs at the top.  In this order....General, Security, Content, Connections, Programs, Advanced.  Basically there is no place that sez normal, minimized, or maximized.

bigdg, do you have the "e" on the quick launch bar which is just next to the [Start] button. Right click that "e".
Only shortcut will have the context menu with properties.

The "e" what you've mentioned is the Internet Option.

Let me know if you've any queries.   pslh
